For people living in a small apartment in city center without balcony like me, we don't have any "safe" place to store it. I got three 5200mAh Lipos and I put them in metal ammo box and put the box near the entrance where there are ceramic tile on the floor. Everywhere else there is wood on the floor. I assume this is the safest place I can store my lipo... I don't have any spare plan if something goes wrong. But since the dangerous things often happen when charging and discharging, I'm not that worried.

I suppose you mean 70 degree Celsius? How is that possible? My rented apartment is at top floor and it gets hot too. At most 38 degree Celsius when I'm off to work.

Fury, Raider,
It is incredibly more important that you 'store' your LiPos at 50-60% capacity versus 'where' you store them. And a drained/empty/almost empty LiPo is MUCH more dangerous than a fully charged one.

I'll charge my LiPos before a run, then back at home put them on the charger to 'storage' voltage (appx 3.8v/cell) and then I just put them in a LiPo safe bag in my house.

See this post for more info
